    I have been working at Regis Corporation part-time

    Pros

    Plenty of learning tools to build and grow your business, and skill level. Flexible schedules. Plenty of walk-in traffic.

    Cons

    The demands are high. You're not just working behind the chair. You're filling out goal sheets and recording data and making art projects for the back room. There is a lot involved.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management is not just a position in a company or corporation. It is a way of being. Living and being our HAIR values. I wish I could experience upper management living and being and teaching and fostering our HAIR values in our salons. It all begins and ends with the leaders.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to build clientele quickly (especially in SmartStyle brand locations), excellent benefits, paid time off, supportive leadership, opportunity for advancement, innovative education tools, discounts on professional tools, contests with fantastic prizes!

    Cons

    Company has been through a lot of changes over the last several years, creating some trust issues within the field.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive wages to put recruiting on a more even playing field, especially for locations that are extremely difficult to staff.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule is pretty fixed. They offer benefits other salons won't. There's a good discount. There are people who walk in and built in clients.

    Cons

    There is poor management. They don't pay well.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be screened better, there is nepotism, bullying, and abuse. There were stylists who witnessed theft by managers.

    I have been working at Regis Corporation full-time

    Pros

    don't need a clientele

    Cons

    pay is terrible, management unqualified, and company is money hungry for more sales, while crunching employees to give faster services and sell more with no more help or incentive; stores are closing all over southeast

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of employees and you will see the return in profit, happy customers, and repeat business. Continue hiring unqualified management and seeing profit as a means to an end, rather than the rewards of a healthy company, and look forward to more closures and more unskilled employees. Also, the company has a big problem with wasteful spending.

    I worked at Regis Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved my stylists and salon leaders

    Cons

    I would have given no stars if it were an option. This company refuses to pay for quality stylists and then can't seem to figure out why they don't attract new talent and don't retain good stylists. The new leader preached love the stylists. Haven't seen any love. They give out expensive prizes, take the Senior Management on expensive trips for meetings while most of the stylists don't make enough to live on.

    Advice to Management

    Walk in your stylists shoes for a day. Also, if you say your going to do it, follow through. Your stylists are smarter than you give them credit for. No stylists, no business.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for.

    Cons

    Regional Leader was not truly interested.

    Advice to Management

    Please please hire someone who has Beauty Industry Experience. There are lots out there with degrees, not someone with a Bachelor's who is clueless about these true professional salon employees. Example- 20 years in hearing management probably truly hate beauty, but just seeking a job. Open your eyes and ears.

    Hard working staff on ground level

    The top executives don't realize

    Advice to Management

    All the money in this organization comes from the stylist
